Inside Liverpool Cathedral lit up with blue and green projection display.


Liverpool Cathedral is set to bring some extra sparkle to the city’s Christmas celebrations with an immersive experience, which will take visitors on an incredible journey through the Nativity story.

‘The Light Before Christmas: The Angels Are Coming!’ invites families to enjoy the most wonderful time of year through son et lumière as the magnificent Gothic interior of the iconic building becomes a canvas for a sequence of dazzling light and sound artworks.

A contemporary twist on the opening scenes of the Nativity, the captivating yuletide experience will see angels guide the way through a special display of twinkling lights, mesmerising projections and beautiful music, inspired by the first Christmas.

As extraordinary sights and sounds fill the vast space inside Liverpool Cathedral, visitors will have the chance to immerse themselves in one of the greatest stories ever told in preparation for their own Christmas celebrations.

The awe-inspiring festive experience is the work of the award-wining artistic collaboration, Luxmuralis, the same team who brought the sell-out installation, ‘Space, The Universe and Everything’, to Liverpool Cathedral earlier this year.

‘The Light Before Christmas: The Angels Are Coming!’ is part of a two-year programme of events, exhibitions and artworks leading up to Liverpool Cathedral’s 100th anniversary, which falls in 2024.

Tickets for the Christmas light and sound experience at Liverpool Cathedral, which lasts around 40 minutes, must be booked in advance, either online at Ticket Quarter or by calling 0344 8000. Sessions start from 4.30 pm and tickets cost £8 for adults, £6 for children with free entry for children under 3. Family tickets (2 adults and 3 children) are available at £25, plus booking fee.

The Ticket Quarter phone line is open from Monday to Friday (9am - 5pm) and the customer service email address is
